Best Beaches on Maui for Photography
If your staying at a beautiful Resort, I recommend starting there & then going to the beach. That way we get 2 gorgeous locations. 


West Maui Beaches
Near Lahaina, Kaanapali, Kapalua, & Napili.
*There is a $50 travel fee to West Maui Locations.

The 1st beach is the most beautiful beach on the island!
Its perfect for any occasion whether its for taking your Maui Portraits or Wedding Photography in Maui.  

There are average beaches that some photographers go to. 
I don't take my clients to the average beaches unless you want to go there. 
The BEST Beach for Photography in Maui is about 15 minutes from Lahaina.  
This beach is GORGEOUS!

This beach as it all!

Resorts & Hotels If your staying at a high end Resort, the hotel grounds are gorgeous!! Perfectly set up for your photography session. There are palm trees, flowers, waterfalls, ponds, just to name a few different backgrounds. We can split up your session to include 2 locations-your resort & the beach. Let me help you create the most beautiful Maui portraits! :) photographers in maui at the westin maui weddingMaui Photographer at The Westin Resort Wedding CouplePhotographer in Maui at the Westin Beach Resort in Kaanapali (Above)

If you are a guest here I highly suggest taking advantage of such gorgeous beauty on the Hotel grounds.  We can start off with the breathtaking waterfalls in the above picture.  After working our way around fountains, palm trees, flowers, streams, gazebos, bridges, and more waterfalls you will have fabulous images.  Then we can spend the rest of your photography session at the beach. photographers in maui honeymoon at wailea marriott (Above)

Other beautiful Hotel grounds are: Makena Beach & Golf Resort, Hotel Wailea, & The Marriott Maui Ocean Club. Your Maui Photography session can also be set up at another location.  There are some Maui locations such as Kaanapali beach that have restrictions enforced by the state.  I am experienced with the Island to help you find the best places for your photography needs.
